From vines planted in 1932, this Pinot Noir is simply beautiful. It's bigger and more dense than its younger brother, No. 55, but maybe a tad less elegant and a bit more cellar worthy. The aromas are a blend of fine French oak and natural Pinot aromas of tea, cherry and raspberry. Mineral and coffee appear late on the finish. Unlike any other Pinot from the continent and much more like Burgundy or Oregon than most neophyte New Worlders.
